3 Jan 2006 faw   » (Journeyer)

Let's go for another round. By the way... we can consider this a quick update, exaclty two weeks! :-)

Yes! 2006 is here!
Happy New Year!!!!!!!! Happy 2006! I really like 2005! But I hope 2006 is going to be even better! :o)

[Debian]
Ok, we did it! After seven untranslated files and one hundred one out-of-date files, the revision process of the d-i manual by the pt_BR team finished and we got included in the next release. Frans Pop announced a freeze of the English strings and a deadline to January 1st, we work hard but we need one extra day and finally we update it! Thanks to pt_BR team and to debian-boot team! Thank you very much! :o)

Still in Debian field, DebConf6 is scheduled to May and I would like to attend! I'm trying to get more involved with Debian, recently I start helping Debian Volatile Team. I'm also working in the Debian Wiki and, of course, I did not forget l10n-portuguese. The other area of interested is the QA in Debian and the i18n FrameWork.

Debian-BR-CDD is now rolling again, since the coordinator is back. :-) I'm working with QA, putting MIA tests in place and trying to help out with some tickets. We hope to get 1.0 in the wild until March 2006! Of course, I have to finish my packages to sent to my sponsors, I have some work to do... finish some new packages and update others.

[Other] Random misc stuff...
I'm working hard to reduce my TODO list. There are some technical and non technical itens that I'm trying to solve in the last week and that I hope to finish until the end of this week, because Jan 9th I came back to work (yep, end of vacations). The week is just beginning and I did a lot, but certainly it is not enough. :-)

Remember that I told you about Cathedral? Well, we had a conversation by mail and we also talk on IRC about that... I'm feeling better, sounds like (and looks like) that I'm still part of it and that I can help and be useful! And I hope that I don't need to post "sad entries" here again (at least not about this topic). \o/ wheeeee! :o)

I would like to say "thanks!" to audioNate that certified me as Journeyer! Thanks!
